A parishioner of All Saints Episcopal Church in Fort Worth writes of the eviction of the congregation in an op-ed today in Baptist News Global. A splinter group took possession of the church property last week.
“The symbol of the lion for Mark comes from its Gospel opening, describing John the Baptist as the voice of a messenger preparing the way, ‘the voice of one crying out in the wilderness,’ urgently.”
The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition. The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity. Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.
The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
